Lumpen Magazine is a news and culture magazine featuring the work of emerging and established artists and writers. It features editorials, interviews, and reviews focused on current events and emerging cultural trends. Published monthly until 1998, it is now quarterly.
Togetherism examines creative experiments with horizontal, collective art-making and organizing. Work done in groups provokes us to consider other social forms than the established. Group work challenges conventions of value and authority in art and society.
In Fall 2019, Public Media Institute organized Togetherism, a series of programs experimenting with horizontal, collective art-making and organizing. Between August and November 2019, artist collectives and community leaders, criminalized youth and teen activists, radical printmakers, curators and architects gathered for exhibitions and panels, work- shops, and river tours. This magazine is the last and lasting component of the festival.
